Love my Wildkat,which is my #1 gigging guitar. Stays in tune really well with the stock bridge and tuners. Love it for rock and roll, and the neck pickup gets a lovely jazz tone too. I'll admit it can sound a bit dark compared to other guitars, possibly due to the wiring but also maybe due to the high output pickups. But no matter: a tweak of the voulme and treble knobs on the amp is an instant fix. I often change between guitars mid set and it never takes more than 30 seconds to adjust the amp accordingly. I've felt no need to rewire mine: five years and a hundred or so gigs in and I'm still a happy chappie. The only mod I may do is darken the yellow top and add a tobacco sunburst.
